NEWS FLASH: Palace Malice, from CURLIN’s first crop, wins the 2013 Belmont Stakes to become the seventh Belmont Stakes winner sold by Lane’s End!
The Belmont Stakes has long been considered a special race at Lane’s End. A.P. INDY won the ”Test of a Champion” back in 1992, seven years before LEMON DROP KID followed suit. In 2007, A.P. INDY’s daughter Rags to Riches became the first filly winner in 102 years, just edging out the great CURLIN, a year after her half-brother, Lane’s End sales grad Jazil, won the Classic. The brilliant UNION RAGS, meanwhile, captured the Belmont a year ago.
And, we have sold six winners of this historic event: A.P. INDY, LEMON DROP KID, Jazil, Rags to Riches, Thunder Gulch and Bet Twice.
We’re now on the eve of the 2013 renewal of the Belmont, and nearly half the field has connections to Lane’s End.
Revolutionary – by the late Lane’s End sire WAR PASS, out of A.P. INDY’s Grade 1 winner Runup the Colors; bred and sold by Lane’s End
